Last week belonged to the cats. So did the week before that, and the week before that. Next week will probably be the same, because let’s face it, cats are generally equal parts silly, unpredictable and unsurprisingly charming.

This week, however, all the Internet attention is going to a bunny named Wally. Wally is an English Angora rabbit, he lives in Natick, Massachusetts, and he has an extremely unique look due to the constant grooming this breed of bunny requires, according to 7 News.

Wally’s owner, Molly Prottas, works with teenagers, who encouraged her to created an Instagram account for her 11-month old bunny. Since the account was created in December 2014, Wally has racked up more than 130,000 followers.

Prottas told 7 News that Wally is “the gentlest, sweetest rabbit, but when it came to grooming, he got so scared.” His signature shaved style helps keep the grooming (and stress) to a minimum, but it’s also turned him into an Internet sensation.

Let’s take a look at the wonder that is Wally, his majestic ear hair, and the moments that have enough power to break the Internet, in the cutest way possible, of course.

Only truly spectacular beings can rock a party hat with this much poise.

Shoes are his only vice.

“I want everyone to see my new SHOES!” Okay, Wally. I will tell your followers you got new shoes! “NO! They can’t KNOW that I want them to KNOW!” Why not, Wally? “I’m a HUMBLE BUNNY! Just say, ‘Here is a nice picture of Wally.'” But Wally? We need to be honest. It’s okay to tell people you’re proud of your new shoes. “I’m PROUD of my NEW SHOES! If you want some, you can’t! Wally already bought them!” (Oh no. This is not exactly what I had in mind.) Wally? There are more pairs of shoes just like yours that people can buy. You might make people sad by telling them they can’t have something special that you have. (Wally gasps.) “Wally makes people SAD?! I’m a BAD BUNNY!” Sigh. Wally and I will talk more about this …
